Tyson Gay Cheated at US Nationals, Failed Several Drug Tests This Year

Track & Field star Tyson Gay failed more than one drug test this year, recording one of his positives at the US championships in June, where he won the 100 and 200 meters, according to the Associated Press. Earlier this month, Tyson revealed he had tested positive in an out-of-competition test he took May 16, but the AP's sources say the 30-year-old, who holds the American record in the 100m, failed "multiple" drug tests this year. One positive came at nationals and the US Anti-Doping Agency has notified him of that result. Earlier this month he admitted to the doping and announced he was pulling out of the World Championships in Moscow after testing positive for a banned substance. He did not named the banned substance, but placed the blame on someone else. "I basically put my trust in someone and was let down." A day after his announcement, his sponsor, Adidas, dropped him.
